Castleton in Performance presents The American Chamber Players, performing music of Mozart, Poulenc, Merck, and the luxuriant piano quartet of Gabriel Fauré.

Castleton is honored to welcome this popular ensemble, known for their residencies at the Library of Congress, the Kreeger Museum, and nationwide tours
